And i have some questions, what subsrate do u use? For females do u put sand in a box on the bottom? what do u suppliment your circkets with that might be available to me in canada? a caresheet should probably answer most of these questions and more.

    Hi, I have veiled and panther chameleons.

    1. NO substrate except for newspaper or paper towels
    2. I use topsoil (organic) and put it in a large pot on the bottom of the cage with sticks coming out of it for easy access.
    3. Cricket gutload-a mixture of high quality fish flakes, powdered milk, carrots, sweet potatoes, whatever other kinds of fruits and veggies I have in my fridge at the time, oatmeal and some of the Repashy cricket gutload thrown in.

        I use a little cricket keeper for the tiny crikets, and a deep big tupperware container for the big crickets since I keep so many crickets at a time. I dont really have a caresheet I can recommend 100% since most of them have some kind of wrong info on them. I've done plenty of reading though so if you have any questions you can always pm me.

            what I meant was do you use a cricket container in the veiled's tank to keep the crickets contained but the veiled can just get them from a bowl or something.

            BTW thanks for the caresheet.

              No I just let the crickets go that way the chams get some exercise and hunt. I do put the wax worms in a container and hang it on the side.

                x69bas429 I'd say do your research between all the care sheets and make your own husbandry and breeding requirements bases on you knowledge. There is no really one manual or care sheet out there BUT from my research I like " The Chameleon Owner's Manual " from The Chameleon Enthusiast. There is also several pages to read from and it is very well documented.


                PS. There is also a 320kb PDF file of the complete manual. If you have any question you can email at any time...
